  1. Boestar, that’s not my understanding. It’s spelled out in the regulations for certification as a common type, control feel must be essentially the same. You are correct in that it is the positioning of the engines that causes the Max to feel light in pitch compared to the NG. But any aircraft with engines mounted under the wing will pitch up with thrust. Of course we wouldn’t be discussing this if Boeing hadn’t continued on with this antique, still using cables and pulleys. FBW and this wouldn’t be an issue.
  2. The system introduces nose down trim so that the control feel on the yoke in the pitch axis feels the same as the NG. To be certified as a common type with the NG the control feel must be similar through all flight regimes. The MAX was too light in pitch feel in the flaps up, high AOA regime to be certified as a common type, hence the need for MCAS. It essentially puts the airplane in an out of trim state so it feels heavier on the yoke, that’s it. It has nothing to do with preventing stalls.
  3. The AC flights from YYZ-DEL and DEL-YYZ were routinely over 16hrs this spring with the detour around Pakistan.
  4. Better do some research into AC’s finances MD2. I don’t see much in your post that is factual.
  5. BA didn’t have flat beds in 2006. AC was one of the few, if only airlines with a lie flat product across the Atlantic back then on most widebody aircraft. The 330’s, 340’s and majority of 767’s received new interiors with the first lie flat seats in 2005. AC hasn’t been a crown company in 30 years. What bailouts? How is a disappointing flight from 13 years ago on a newly merged airline with a mixed fleet which was undergoing a refleeting at the time relevant to Swoop which is operating one type? MD2 you are really scraping the bottom of the barrel.
  6. When did AC recently cancel most of its flights? I don’t recall hearing about it as it would have shut the Country down. There are roughly 1600 per day including affiliates.

  8. From Airbus The A321LR – a new variant of Airbus’ A321neo, deliveries of which began in 2018 – has the longest range of any single-aisle jetliner, able to fly routes of up to 4,000 nm with 206 passengers while utilising extra fuel stored in three Additional Centre Tanks (ACTs). Ideally-suited to transatlantic routes, the A321LR allows airlines to tap into new long-haul markets that were not previously accessible with current single-aisle aircraft. Operators can outfit it in state-of-the-art two-class configurations with full-flat seats for true long-haul comfort, or in a single-class layout.

  11. My understanding that while the airplane was still on the runway, it weathervaned on the 100% ice covered runway. They hadn’t reached the turnoff yet. The pilots were along for the ride.
  12. I could never see the goose. My eyes always focus on the white rabbit head.
  13. The only time Porter has revealed their finances was during the IPO attempt. They showed a money losing operation with the exception of the last reported quarter which showed a couple hundred thousand dollar profit. Probability is they are surviving on the furniture they sold. (Terminal)
  14. Food, water and bathrooms are the same on the ground and on flight. Maybe I msread the article but the gist of the complaints are about not being let off the plane for 13 hours. If they were held onboard for that length of time, then re-departed for a 15 hour flight making it a 30 hour endurance test, then I agree with you. But I don’t think that was the case.
